21st century manufacturing excellence...
Micro Etched Fluid Flow Channels
Advanced Chemical Etching specialises in the manufacturing of precision photo etched metal components for customers in more than 15 sectors.
Space & Weight Benefits
Our unrivalled ability to offer prototype components to pre-production and small volume fulfilment has also seen us increase our market share in aerospace, F1, fuel cells and medical – all industries that demand safety-critical components and parts made in a full range of materials and tolerances.
Making the difference
Benefits at a glance:
Low Cost Digital Tooling
The photo tool is more efficient and far less expensive than typical hard tooling.
No Hard Tooling
No major investment, no tooling delivery delay and no tool maintenance and repair costs required.
No Metal Stress or Part Deformation
Etched metal parts remain flat as the metal removal is achieved chemically, not mechanically.
Secondary deburring operations are eliminated.
The temper of metal is not changed, thus the magnetic property is not affected. ACE has developed more techniques than any other chemical etching company to produce etched metal parts in a range of innovative materials.
Excellent precision, repeatability, accuracy and a quick turnaround. Engineering changes and modifications can be made quickly, easily and cost effectively.
